I have a Gateway FX6800-03h it has a TBGM01 motherboard with Intel x58 Chipset Bios R01-B0 I have just installed two seagate 1tb drives that I set to Raid0 in the bios. I then installed Windows 7 Home premium on the raid drives. No problems all has gone well. But now when I go to Control Panel/Device Manager I have the yellow ! on Other devices...Raid Controller. Windows does not recognize it just says Raid controller/Manufactorer Unknown. I have searched the Gateway site for Raid Controllers with no luck. What drivers do I need?
Thanks in advance any suggestions.

Since you have an Intel X58 based motherboard, download the latest Intel Rapid Storage Technology 9.6 driver.

Once downloaded, just run it, it'll self install. Then reboot, and check device manager.

That is weird though, Windows 7 has the X58 chipset driver as part of it's "base drivers."
